The Competing Powers of Feeling and Thinking: Self, Other, Action w/Dr. Bernie Steinberg, 7:30 pm
November 12, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 7:30 pm on Tuesday, repeating until November 19, 2019
The Competing Powers of Feeling and Thinking: Self, Other, Action: For millennia, humans have struggled to balance the competing powers of emotion and mind, feeling and thinking. How does Jewish tradition understand
the relationship between emotion and thought, feeling and thinking? In this series, we shall explore this core question in terms of its practical relevance to three related vital questions: How do we understand ourselves as individuals, our humanity, Jewishly? How do we understand & value our relationships with others? How do we translate these views of self and others into moral and political actions? Our discussion will be based on classical and contemporary Jewish texts and a variety of other sources.
Dr. Bernie Steinberg is Director Emeritus, Harvard Hillel, teaches at the Graduate Theological Union and Kevah in Berkeley. He recently wrote an essay on Maimonides for Oxford University Press Bibliographies.
